<p style="text-align: center"><a href="https://www.androidpolice.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/70-percent-cash.png" class=" no-style"><img class="alignnone size-hero-size wp-image-516712" src="https://www.androidpolice.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/70-percent-cash-728x410.png" alt="" width="668" height="376" /></a></p> <p>Congratulations: You've finally developed your million-dollar app. You took a great idea, implemented it, built it into a polished UI, and tested it until you tracked down every last bug. Now it's ready for public release, so you can sit back, relax and ... earn just 70% of what users pay for your software? That doesn't sound right. Yet it's a position that mobile app developers everywhere find themselves in, one that's perched somewhere on the intersection between wildly unfair and mild extortion.<div class="clear"></div> <a href="https://www.androidpolice.com/2018/09/23/opinion-googles-30-cut-play-store-app-sales-nothing-short-highway-robbery/" class="read-more">Read...
